Searching for Richard Gibson BROWN, my 2nd great paternal grandfather. We've been looking for his ancestry for years! The closest we can find so far is him as son of Valentine BROWN and Seviah (SPINKS) BROWN in Half Moon, NY b. 1796. He married Rhebeca MOORE (from OH) on 12 Jan 1844 in Rock Island, IL. They moved on to IA and their children were Loammie, Benjamin, Susan and Richard.
BUT, we're not sure he's the right one. There is family lore of being descended from Chad BROWNE...
If anyone has info on good old "R.G", please let me know. I'm willing to share what I have, of course, and also willing to dig if you have any leads. Thanks/Wado
btw - my father's maternal line is full of Cherokee.
